Remove Kitchen Cupboard Doors

Urgency: High
Cost: $0 to remove, disposal?
Status: In progress, 8/15/2009

Description: The cupboard doors are not good. They had to go. It looks much better without them. Later on we’ll repaint the wood and eventually remodel, but for now it just needs to be opened up.

Tools Needed

Screwdriver
Wheelbarrow (to haul to junk pile)

Parts Needed

None (for removal)
Paint (for cleaning up shelves)

Replace Clothes Dryer

Urgency: High
Cost: $378 before tax and extended warranty
Status: Done

Description: The house came with all appliances, which was good for just moving in but the clothes dryer doesn’t actually dry the clothes. It might just be an easy fix, but it’s also so small that you can’t do a large load or blankets.

Update: Ended up getting a new 6.5 cu foot capacity dryer at Lowe’s. They brought it out, laughed over the old dryer, and installed the new one on the 1st.
